Hi,

Izzit 580exii external flash not suitable for macro photography ?
I tried this flash with DIY diffuser on 100mm macro lens.
for distant 15cm and above, the light nicely diffuse, but when
i very close to the subject, it cannot diffuse and picture come
out very dark.

Any sifu suggestion ?

Thanks in advance

Could it be because ur lens is casting a shadow on ur subject since u are shooting so close?
